Hypothesis and variables

Solid Motor Rocket Propulsion


What does it take to launch a satellite to explore Mars, or a mission to the moon? This project has several possible variations for exploring the physics of rockets. This is rocket science!


The objective of this project is to measure changes in a rocket's performance based on differences in the rocket's motor.

Independent variable
The type or motor used for the rocket

Dependent variable
The speed of the rocket

The more powerful the motor, the faster the rocket will move.
